Jofra Archer also conveyed his gratitude for the Rajasthan Royals franchise. He said, “Grateful to Rajasthan for taking the chance on me. Obviously, not playing any international cricket, they took a really big risk having me, as opposed to somebody who’s played 50 or 60 international games, so I’m really grateful for Rajasthan.”
Jofra Archer is all set to debut for England in the one ODI match against Ireland in Dublin on May 3. Bowling 4 overs in a match and 10 overs in a match makes a lot of difference. It would be interesting to see how the 24-year-old performs in the longer format of the game.
